LISBON FALLS, Maine – Senate Majority Leader Garrett Mason, candidate for Governor, spent Saturday morning at the Androscoggin Republican County caucus. Mason, who announced his candidacy for Governor in October has been meeting with voters throughout the state, discussing how his priorities as Governor put Maine First.

“It has been great to not only meet so many Mainers but have them actively get involved with the campaign, which has allowed us to reach all of our goals in record time,” said Senator Mason.  “With the support from Maine voters in every corner of the state, I believe we have built an engine to win on June 12th and in November. Together, we will put Maine First.”

Mason got a round of applause when he spoke about his plans to put Maine First. “One of my top priorities as Governor is to fight to eliminate of the income tax, because Mainers deserve to keep more of their hard-earned money in their pocket,” said Senator Mason. “As Senate Majority Leader, I understand the legislative budget process, and I promise that a Mason administration budget will always put Maine families and Maine businesses first.”

Garrett Mason is a seventh-generation Mainer who calls Lisbon and Androscoggin County home.  He currently serves as Senate Majority Leader, also working in his family’s excavation business and leading on conservative causes.

In the months ahead, Garrett will continue his work by listening to the concerns of all Mainers and fighting everyday to make state government work for the people again.  He will use those conversations to pursue new policies that strengthen Maine’s economy, education system and citizen initiative process.
